“Connecticut Bail Fund is a nonprofit organization that protects the rights of the accused by paying bail for those who cannot afford it. Since late November, the Fund has provided bail for fifteen individuals — 9 men, 5 women, and 1 child — all of whom would have otherwise languished in pretrial detention due to poverty alone. Thanks to our intervention, these individuals were able to maintain their jobs, custody of their children, access to healthcare, and shelter placements — without enduring the traumas of jail time. Moreover, they can now fight their charges from a position of freedom, instead of pleading guilty just to get out of jail. As a donor-funded operation, our success in combating wealth-based jailing is entirely dependent on the generosity of the community. Because bail payments are refunded after case disposition, Connecticut Bail Fund operates on a revolving basis, with all contributions assisting defendant after defendant, family after family.”
